4 Postdoctoral Positions in Cloud Processes, Modeling, and Remote Sensing

The Environmental and Climate Sciences Department
(<>) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL)
invites applications for four Postdoctoral Research Associate positions.
The successful candidates will join the Cloud Processes Group
( that is recognized for its state of
the art observational and modeling studies of the microphysical and
dynamical processes that impact the lifecycle of clouds and convection,
with the aim of improving their representation in climate models and
increase our ability to understand and project global change.

All positions require a Ph.D. in atmospheric science or a closely
related field by the time of appointment, and a background in
cloud-related research. It is preferred that candidates have: experience
with atmospheric modeling at LES, cloud-resolving or global scales;
experience with analysis of observational datasets, particularly those
acquired via remote sensing; and have a strong programming background
and verbal and written communication skills. Further requirements and
preferences are given in the individual position descriptions.

The successful candidates are expected to interact with a team of
resident scientists (Drs. Michael Jensen, Scott Giangrande, Andrew
Vogelmann, and Pavlos Kollias
[<>]) and
form an exciting, collaborative group that spearheads innovative cloud
research using modeling, observations, and analysis methodologies.
Candidates with an appetite for team approaches and solid independent
thinking are strongly encouraged to apply. The successful candidates
will have the opportunity to interact with scientists and graduate
students at Stony Brook University, as well as with an extensive network
of collaborative scientists, and are expected to publish and present
results at national and international venues.

Review of applications begins immediately. Applications will be accepted
until the positions are filled. The initial appointment will be one
year, with a conditional extension for one or two years.

See the links below for full position descriptions, specific position
requirements, and to submit your application. (Only apply to the
position most closely aligned with your interests, as the application
can be applied to all positions.)

• Examine the processes that drive the lifecycle of shallow clouds,
their interaction with the environment and/or deep convection using
observations and/or modeling:


• Determine the physical reason for cloud simulation deficiencies
through analysis of cloud-related observations, and high-resolution
and/or large-scale model fields:


• Improve shallow convection parameterization schemes by combining
ground-based observations, forward instrument simulators and
high-resolution model output from cloud-resolving models:

• Improve convective climate-cloud parameterization schemes through the
use of cloud radar and scanning weather radars using forward instrument
simulators and spectral bin microphysics model outputs from the Weather
Research and Forecasting model:


BNL is located on Long Island, NY, about 60 miles outside New York City,
and is an equal opportunity employer.
